Horus Roasting Marshmallows

We have a fun challenge for you at The Stamping Bazaar the week! The theme is "Tags"... you can add them to your project or have the tag be your project. I made this card using Horus Roasting Marshmallows in tribute to a small campfire I'll be enjoying this weekend - and yes, with a bag of marshmallows. :D


The corner embellishments are laser cut chipboard embellishments covered with Liquid Pearls plus a Dew Drop. I also added a few Dew Drops around the card and used up another one of those Tim Holtz tickets that seem to last forever. Horus is one of my favorite characters so I hope you enjoy this version.

Did you know? Rinaldo is an opera by George Frideric Handel composed in 1711, and was the first Italian language opera written specifically for the London stage. The story of love, battle and redemption set at the time of the First Crusade is loosely based on Torquato Tasso's epic poem Gerusalemme liberata ("Jerusalem Delivered"), and its staging involved many original and vivid effects. It was a great success with the public, despite negative reactions from literary critics hostile to the contemporary trend towards Italian entertainment in English theaters.
